In 2022, the 16th Annual Chili for the Children will again support Make-A-Wish Georgia!  Since 1995, Make-A-Wish® Georgia has been granting the wishes of local children facing critical illnesses. More than 20 years later, nearly 8,000 lives have experienced the impact of a life-changing wish. Make-A-Wish Georgia is a movement to renew families and communities disrupted by serious childhood illness. We all have the power to make wishes come true. To learn how you can become a part of the story, join us on Sunday, February 27. 

 

Due to the pandemic, Chili for the Children will look a little different this year. Rather than our traditional gathering, we’re having award-winning chefs prepare chili for your at-home tasting!

 

Your donation includes a trio of chili servings for 2 prepared by Atlanta’s top chefs and the option to:

  1. $100 Donation: Drop by Bar{n} to enjoy some booze {n} bites, grab your chili, and celebrate 16 years – or –

  2. $150 Donation: Have your chili trio delivered to you – or –

  3. Tell us to "keep the calories and your donation" because it’s just for the children!

100% of the proceeds will go to Make-a-Wish!

As an added incentive for local corporate engagement, Make-A-Wish America will be matching donations made in support of Make-A-Wish Georgia, so your gift will have double the impact on children within our state!
